Born in Shillong in 1981, to a family of three generations of renowned musicians, Saptarshi Chakraborty inhaled music with his very first breath. Initiated into music by his illustrious grandfather , Late Radhika Ranjan Chakraborty, a close disciple of Nobel Laureate Gurudev Rabindranath Tagore; and grandmother Late Asha Chakraborty who was the first female A.I.R.artist of Shillong Radio, Saptarshi , since the tender age of five(5), has been trainning under his father , the much acclaimed Sangeet Guru , Acharya Sudip Chakraborty , Principal of the Shillong Music College, an expert exponent of the Kotali and Kirana Gharana Gayaki of the Sangeetacharya Tarapada Chakraborty musical lineage.

After having trained under his father for almost fifteen (15) years, Saptarshi went on to place himself under the tutelage of none other than Padma Vibhushan Sangeet Martand Pandit Jasraj ji , the doyen of Mewati Gharana , the living legend of Hindustani Classical Music , who , having spotted the immense talent , takes utmost care in polishing his skills as he believes that Saptarshi has the required dedication and devotion to carry forward the rich tradition of the Mewati Gharana. For this fact , Saptarshi considers himself immensely blessed which has transformed him into a more humble and mature artist.

Saptarshi is an empanelled artist of Indian Council for Cultural Relations (I.C.C.R.)

A first class master degree holder in Hindustani Vocal Music from Rabindrabharati University , Saptarshi has mersmerised audiences in the major cities of the country like Mumbai , Kolkata, Pune, Delhi, Hyderabad , Banaras , Raipur, etc. Saptarshi has had the rare privilege of performing at the Kumbh Mela Mahotsav 2010 at Haridwar , where the artist line up included the likes of Pandit Shiv Kumar Sharma, Hema Malini and Pandit Jasraj.

Saptarshi has to his credit a solo album ‘Reverence’, which has been broadcast from World Space Satellite Radio , having received high acclaim for his performance.

Apart from ‘Khayal’, ‘Bhajan’ and ‘Haveli Sangeet’, Saptarshi is equally adept at singing ‘Rabindrasangeet’ owing to a musically rich family tradition.
